ESPN expert Timothy Bradley is confident that Vasily Lomachenko can still become the undisputed world champion, despite the defeat by Teofimo Lopez.
“Lomachenko is a fantastic fighter. Let’s not take anything away from him and belittle his career achievements. One defeat from a top-level opponent does not mean that he is not a great fighter. Lomachenko has already consolidated his resume and entered his name into history books. He is a fighter. that I want to watch.
Lomachenko should go down to the second featherweight, where, I think, he will be much more comfortable. I believe weight and punching power definitely played a role in the fight with Lopez.
I admire Lomachenko because he wants not just to be good, but to become great. He wants to be perfect. He took the necessary risk trying to make history. You have to take risks to become great, and Loma took it. He knew he was risking everything. He lacked a little, but that’s okay. The battle is not over. He needs to come down, wait and regain his confidence. He could become the undisputed featherweight champion, “Bradley told ESPN.
